Mohamed Al-Fayed - Life - Happiness - God

I think you have to work with people, and when I talk about managing relationships, don’t think the derogatory ‘‘managed relationships’’. It is a question of sharing emotion and feelings. The common denominator of everything can’t be money, and it should not be money.
Anil Ambani - Work - Management - Money - People

The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.
Steve Ballmer - Technology - Learning - Innovation - Solutions

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
Edward Bernays - America - Manipulation - Ideas - Democracy - Social - People

No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and clichés and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.
Edward Bernays - Propaganda - Sociology - People - Ideas - Opinions - Manipulation - Prejudice

Tony Blair - Politicians - Commitment - People

Ken Blanchard - Leadership - Responsibility

Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa – and it’s about getting a balance.

As we go forward, I hope we're going to continue to use technology to make really big differences in how people live and work.

Self-esteem is a huge piece of my work. You have to believe it's possible and believe in yourself. Because after you've decided what you want, you have to believe it's possible, and possible for you, not just for other people. Then you need to seek out models, mentors, and coaches.
Jack Canfield - Self Esteem - Belief - People


How come when it's us, it's an abortion, and when it's a chicken, it's an omelet? Are we so much better than chickens all of a sudden? When did this happen; that we passed chickens in goodness? Name six ways we're better than chickens.. See, nobody can do it! You know why? 'Cause chickens are decent people.
George Carlin - Funny - Abortion - People - Animal - Good - Food

Creating a close connection to those you do business with has its many risks, rewards and consequences.

On the flipside, I have been rewarded with many friends
Mark Cuban - Challenges - People - Business - Partnership

People who grow rich almost always improve their sex life. More people want to have sex with them. That’s just the way human beings work. Money is power. Power is an aphrodisiac. Money did not make me happy. But it definitely improved my sex life.
Felix Dennis - Rich - Improvement - People - Money - Power - Happy


Rich people always have a certain degree of debt. Apparently it helps to reduce taxes. I'm not so hot on the bean-counting side.

I think this feeling that I have for people and the importance of behaving in a way which is respectful to people of all colours, shapes, sizes and religions goes back a very long way.. possibly to my mother and father in very early stages of childhood.

Janet Holmes a Court - People


We must respect each other's right to choose a collective destiny, and the opportunity to develop the legal and political rights for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples so that we may enjoy the right to maintain our culture, our heritage and our land, as a united Australia.
Jackie Huggins -
Compassion - Australia - Respect - Opportunity - Culture - Human Rights - People - Indigenous

The true essence of reconciliation is more than making friends with nonindigenous people. Our motto is united Australia, one that respects the land and the heritage of its indigenous peoples and provides justice and equity for all. I think reconciliation is about changing the structures that govern us and trying to influence opinion leaders in whatever way we can.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - People - Opinions - Indigenous

I'm far from being reclusive. I have thirty or forty year friendships that I prefer to meeting new people. I go to an occasional party, but just because I don't go to a lot of events, and I'm not out in public all the time doesn't mean I'm anti-social or a recluse.
Kirk Kerkorian - Friendship - People

Abraham Maslow -
People - Peace - Truth - Nature

We must never forget our responsibilities as politicians to our country and its citizens. We must always remain humble before our people.
Angela Merkel - Politicians - Responsibility - People

I think transitions are never that noticeable, but they are always on their way. It has to do with distance and accessibility. People call it mellowing, but I think it's how available you are toward other people, or how much you distance yourself.
Paul Newman - Change -
People

There's no genius behind it. It's persistence and listening to people.
Craig Newmark - Improvement - Listening - Persistence - People

- Help - Problems - Internet

Pierre Omidyar - Technology - People - Business

What makes eBay successful.. the real value and the real power at eBay is the community. It's the buyers and sellers coming together and forming a marketplace.
Pierre Omidyar - People - Successful -

When I started eBay, it was a hobby, an experiment to see if people could use the Internet to be empowered through access to an efficient market. I actually wasn't thinking about it in terms of a social impact. It was really about helping people connect around a sphere of interest so they could do business.
Pierre Omidyar - People - Internet - Business - Power

People, regardless of political views, matter in this state and in this country and in this world. And, you know, when people attack people's basic rights and livelihoods, I'm concerned about it. And as a citizen of Queensland and nothing else, I've got the right to express my view.
Clive Palmer - People - Australia - Politics - Freedom of Expression


I've got enough money in my life to retire now and do nothing. But I've got a duty and obligation to see if we can create more jobs in this state, and the government's got an obligation to approve projects and to assess them for the benefit of the people of Queensland.
Clive Palmer - People - Australia - Politics - Money - Rich - Responsibility - Government - Obligation - Retirement

Bob Proctor - Money - People - Good

Upwards of two hundred species.. mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety.. are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence.. thanks to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace. I hope it will not be too long before the technologies that support our population explosion begin to be perceived as no less hazardous to the future of life on this planet than the endless production of radioactive wastes.
Daniel Quinn - Nature
- Life - People - World - Technology - Peace - Environmental

The world is not in any sense in danger from itself. The world is in fact not in any danger at all. It is we who are in danger.
Daniel Quinn - World - People

Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done.. almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing. The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world. And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.
Daniel Quinn - Nature - World - People - Problems - Stupid

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Government - People - Strength - Challenges - Compassion

I think that if it is.. has to do with global warming, or if it has to do with raising the minimum wage, or if it has to do with lowering prescription drugs for vulnerable citizens.. all of those things are people issues, not Democratic issues or Republican issues.
Arnold Schwarzenegger - Environmental - Economy - Global Warming - Government - Politicians - People - Wage

If you do the right job then money will come to you. Because people who need you will request, will ask for you, will attract you, and will be willing to pay you for your services.
